obsessed2: Thanks Senior for the feedback, e-mail nor any other internet connected app works even though the edge says it is connected. I checked the Routers configuration and Proxy is not enabled nor is VPN. I and not blocking port 80 either.

The laptop and the wife's Android phone both connect via wireless just fine. It is just the Edge.

If I do a reset will I lose anything and/or what wil I louse. And how do I do a reset?

Thanks,

Hey Boats, Welcome Aboard. I wouldn't Reset the Edge because like you said in your first post this started exactly when the router was replaced. I don't have FIOS but I have Verizon DSL. You say you can get into the router configuration screen. When you look under My Network (again this is DSL) or wherever it shows connected devices, try deleting the Edge from the router. You will know the Edge by its MAC address which can be found by selecting Settings, Network Controls, Wi-Fi Settings, press the MENU button and select Advanced.

Also, if it is a Secure Network try going Open for a few minutes to see if the Edge will connect or better yet take the Edge to a Library or McDonald's or somewhere that has open Wi-Fi and see if it will connect there.

So Boats, were you surface, sub-surface, or aviator? I was a surface ETCS in the Navy. Retired in 2008 after 24 plus years and went back in school. Graduate this Fall. I would have stayed for 30 but after 3 times up and striking out for Master Chief and a grueling 7 month deployment I decided to drop anchor.
